Breathing hard, I raced from my house knowing I had a shot at glimpsing a rare beauty. Lungs about to burst I pressed on in hope that I would arrive in time. As each step became harder and harder, the light began to dim, but being so close, I pressed on.... Sometimes one gives it everything they have for a chance like this, and for me, today, it was worth it. Live life intentionally and chase after what you desire. It may not work all the time... but when it does, you will be glad you gave it all you had to get to where you needed to be.

Sometimes, all we need is to take a deep breath and let go. Let go of what we can’t control so we can focus on what we are given control over. One breath at a time, one moment at a time, we can move forward and take steps towards that brighter future we all hope for.

Teachers, we could never thank you enough. But maybe some FREE chocolate is a good place to start? 🍫Stop by any time through Saturday and say “I’m a teacher!” to get a chocolate pop on us. It’s the least we could do to say THANK YOU for all you do to make our lives + our community so sweet. We love you! 💕⠀ ⠀ Tag a local teacher to let her know her end-of-the-year treat is waiting! 👇

A week or so back I spent my lunch break along the bank of the quarry at Ijams Nature Center shooting photos of dragonflies and damselflies. As I was making my way back to my ride I came across this beauty sunbathing on the rail of a small footbridge. I’m fairly certain I have never seen this species before. #getaglimpseofgrace #broadheadedskink #skink #lizard #reptilesofinstagram #country_features #everything_imaginable #everything_animals #fingerprintofgod #fiftyshades_of_nature #hey_ihadtosnapthat #ijams #instagramtennessee #865life #knoxify #knoxvegas #pocket_family #picture_to_keep #scruffyknox #trb_members1
